Cutting Class : Grow Your Own Cut Flower Garden

Saturday Oct 5th, 1-5pm

Join me on October 5th for the only chance this year to tour the cutting gardens in the urban farm. In this workshop we’ll cover the integral components of creating a flourishing, healthy cut flower garden. As we tour the gardens and talk flowers you’ll be able to pick a bucket of your own flowers to take home with you. My hope is that you’ll leave feeling informed and inspired, ready to prep your garden this fall and confident in the knowledge you need to get a head start on your spring garden.

In the workshop we’ll cover:

  • best varieties to growing from seed, favorites and unusual varieties

  • how to start seeds indoors and in the garden

  • perennials and shrubs to include in your cutting garden

  • preparing your site in fall

  • creating nutrient rich soil

  • how to grow a ton of flowers in a small space

  • designing your garden

  • controlling weeds

  • growing dahlias, including how to dig and divide them in fall

  • staking, supporting and netting

  • best harvesting practises for different varieties

  • Includes handouts

Maximum 15 participants. 8 minimum for the class to run.

Payment will book your spot and is non-refundable. 

In the case of severe weather the class may be rescheduled.
